Description
A complete remake of a song I created about two years ago. Not exactly my typical down-tempo genre... It was fun and I hope you enjoy it as such.
I'm not sure about the genre 'gothic rock' (the closest I could come up with). I suppose it's something more 'gothic-electro-dance-pop'... Whatever, it's danceable... mmm... I think so... partially:-)

Nice one
Great sound and production. Sounded great in the headphones. I particularly like the abrupt piano riffs and the "brass" riff on the break. Vocal performance is terrific - reminded me somewhat of Gary Numan (which in my book is a good thing btw!) Nice rolling, sense of motion feel to the music, and good beats. Nice work. Peace.

the piano riff and the brass melody in the bridge where two of the elements I really wanted to keep unchanged. They are kind of the hook of the song. Thanks for the sweet compliments and most of all for listening. Much appreciated.

use of fx
Lots of interesting fx use in here. Very clever use of the echo's both on the keys and on your vox.
The repeating piano figure going up and down was a neat hook-line.

As I tend to be a soul/blues guy, I can't quite get into the groove of this genre with total devotion, but I can recognize that you must have enjoyed making it and that it is a well craftet piece of music:)

Great sounds Walt .....

Although I purchased Logic recently, I think I'm still glued to GB for quite a while. Perhaps just out of laziness:-) So I'm glad you liked the production performance. Thanks so much again for passing by. And you know that the appreciation is absolutely mutual.

This sounds very good. Lots of sounds going on, and everything clearly audible. Nice job.

The whole arrangement is very good, with the treatmnt of the vocals, and that piano riff. That one actually makes the song.

Cool.

Piano Hooked Me
Super original treatment to the piano and the staccato vocals. You have such a cool voice and you use it well in this rather unusual gothic song. The horns were interesting.

I've downloaded this one.

Thanks for posting a really good song.

at the intro riff/I'm dancing
You have exhibited your vocal can fit anywhere. You have one of the most identifiable voices on the planet.
along with Neil young, Bob Dylan, and Jiguma.
You are in good company for sure... The exactness in you vocal performance is impressive...
This tune is very creative in its full bodied production. You have such good ideas when it comes to creating a sound to enhance your great song-writing. I really dig the drum pics, they give the tune great strenth. You conjure up a sense of invincibility wit this cut.
I could dig some kind of chordal change up with a cutting guitar solo from maybe mcboy or a rocker like PickQuick Records or even a subtle slippery ziti solo....

I am a guitar solo type o guy...
anothe suggestion...
I'm full of em tonight...
Some harmonies against you vocal to sweetin the pot would be cool...
You voice sounds so cool on' the same herd' with the clean and clear Lisa(ledebutant) vocal accompaniment.
Just IMHO
I have spoken
great great sound
I loved this song
a keeper
peace

you're way too kind, man... Thanks so much for the lovely compliments. And I'm really considering your suggestions. On the other side, I don't want to make the song too 'lovely'(cfr. the vocal harmonies). It's a very cold, almost robotic-like song, and that's something I definitely want to keep.

Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Jiguma. Indeed, veeeery great company:-) Thanks so much again, Tim!

Is there anything...
...that you can't do?

Wow. And when that horn part comes in, it just gets better and better!

If it is possible, I am an even bigger fan than I was!

Fantastic job in trying something new--that means you are a true artist: more interested in change than you are afraid of change. Admirable.

Well done, Walt. I really do believe you have the sound of an updated Jethro Tull... with so many interesting quirks and inventions.

It all has your unique stamp. You are flowering, my friend. ;)

Remarkable..

.. aced the production Walter. Solid tune and nicely different and fresh. The beats and work on the vocal playing off the delay are worth special mention .. though I'm not keen on the Paul Hardcastle "19" 'l l l l l lies' stuttering myself to be perfectly honest.

I liked all the parts and how they interplay with each other - it does have the electropop thing and as David mentioned, with your (excellent) voice, leads me to think of Gary Numan too, as closest kin. Having said that, I would have been tempted to try the piano as a deep analog synth, something sawy, bit of bite to it.

Cool song, enjoyeable listen, brilliant production/mix.

You might be right about the stuttering on 'lies'. I think I'd rather finetune it for the CD version or just leave it out. About replacing the piano by a deep synth: I just did the opposite at the time. IMHO the piano (and perhaps also the brass part) give the song this unusual edge. But I guess any song is like a portion of french fries: I like them with mayonnaise and perhaps you prefer ketchup:-)

Thanks so much again for popping in, mate! And have a spledid year ahead!

I love the whole experimental/dance feel this has. Nice piano and vocal performances. I particularly liked the part where the brass came in, quite unpredictable which is a good thing. Thanks for sharing!

Very effective driving, tension level throughout. This is one of your best. I enjoyed it much. This tune also lends itself to add some rapping in the background. This is really bold stuff.

I like the beat....
...and I like the staccato synth and the starting-and-stopping piano...

The mix and the arrangement work well together in terms of accentuating the hooks in the rhythm and lyrics...

This IS different from what I've heard from you before, but nicely so. A great change, and one that would give new life to slower tunes if it was on a CD among them...

Simple but very effective stuff. Kept my attention. Could imagine some funky rythmn and a guitar solo in there. Nice 1.
